No Selfie Sticks at Apple WWDC

Apple Bans Selfie Sticks at WWDC

It doesn’t want the stick to be blocking other peoples’ vision at the live event.

Apple has prohibited the use of selfie sticks and other similar monopods within the bounds of Moscone West or Yerba Buena Gardens at its Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) that is scheduled to be held at the Moscone Convention Centre in San Francisco from June 8-12.

The rule is mentioned in the general instruction webpage designed for developers interested in attending this year’s conference.

The no-photography section states that the attendees cannot take photos or use selfie sticks during the event. Any person found to be violating the no-photography rule will immediately be removed from the event.

Selfie sticks blocks other people’s view, which is why Apple has decided to warn people against its use at the event.

The general instructions webpage further prohibits attendees from using cigarettes, recording audio and capturing videos during the event.

WWDC is one of the most awaited events for developers and technology enthusiasts. The tech giant uses the conference to lift the curtains off its plans for the year, including giving a brief on some of the products that are in the pipeline.

The tickets for this year’s event are now available for $1,599.
